One of the things I admire the most about countries outside of the US is how individual they are.  How unique and innovative they are.  You won't find many designers copying others, especially when it comes to accessories either for homes or fashion.  That's one of the many reasons I love French Interiors.  Either traditional or modern design the overall result is about the person's own life and way of living.  Style is about the entire lifestyle, the way you dress, eat, travel, shop, think and everything you do in life encompasses your lifestyle.  And since Chic is in the details and one detail for home decor is side tables, here is a round up of French and Modern Side Tables for your inspiration.  Enjoy!
